    My 1907 1894 Winchester lost its rear sight setscrew, as you all can see. It's lying somewhere amidst pine needles in eastern Oregon. Any ideas to procure a replacement?

    Go back to Eastern Oregon and retrace your steps while dragging this. You will probably find your lost screw and perhaps a few others as well . Really, sorry you lost the original screw, but bet your great grandpa wouldn’t mind since you were in the woods.
